Since these boats are SAILboats and you will probably be using the sails quite a bit more than the motor, how are the sails on each? All things being equal the Hunter is probably a bit more...

The trailer and motor, if in good condition are probably worth $500-600 so your getting a boat for $1000. Can't see how you could go wrong. Learn to sail on it, your not going to win any races. ...

We'll see. I just did some of it a couple of months. So far looks pretty good. The good thing is that is sands off really easily. I don't think it will chip like varnish does when it gets water...
